Cognitive improvement with HBOT

HBOT – Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy involves supplying a body with 100% pure medical grade oxygen at 2 times the normal atmospheric pressure. At this rate, a body is supplied with 5 to 10 times more oxygen at higher pressures as a result of which more oxygen gets dissolved in the red blood cells and in plasma. The excess oxygen is supplied to every needy cell and tissue in the body that can promote optimal functioning and repair of cells, tissues etc.

Brain abscess – symptoms, causes, diagnosis and treatment

Brain Abscess

Brain abscess is a collection of pus that forms when an area of the brain is infected or hurt. Brain abscess should be treated as a medical emergency failing which can result in functioning of certain body parts or may lead to death. Brain abscess is often seen in men under 30 years of age followed by children between 4 and 7 years.

Alzheimer’s disease – How HBOT can help in treating Alzheimer’s

Alzheimer’s disease – How HBOT can help in treating Alzheimer’s

Scientists in Israel genetically modified the genes of mice so that they get Alzheimer’s disease. Once the mice started showing symptoms of the disease, they were treated with HBOT every day for 2 weeks and the results were “Extremely Exciting”. The mice showed significant reduction in physical and behavioural symptoms after treating with Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy.


Conditions when you should consider HBOT as an additional treatment option

1. Gas Gangrene
2. Thermal burns or any other serious burns
3. Intracranial Abscesses
4. Acute Traumatic Ischemia (ATI)
5. Gas Embolism
6. Radiation Damage (usually in patients who underwent cancer treatment)
7. Decompression sickness
8. Severe injuries where the muscles are crushed under heavy force
9. Infections that spread faster or kill soft tissue faster
10. Foot ulcers or wounds in diabetic patients

Carbon monoxide poisoning – Symptoms, causes and treatment

Carbon monoxide poisoning – Symptoms, causes and treatment

Carbon monoxide poisoning is a condition when a person is subjected to inhaling carbon monoxide released from combustion of fuel, wood or other flammable items in a completely or partially closed space. Usually when a flammable item is burnt, it releases carbon monoxide which is typically an unstable gas. It immediately combines with oxygen present in the air to form carbon dioxide.

TBI – Traumatic Brain Injury – Symptoms and causes

TBI – Traumatic Brain Injury – Diagnosis and Treatment

The diagnosis of TBI is done by measuring the impact of the injury on a Glasgow Coma Scale. The scale ranges from 3 to 15, higher the number, lesser the impact. When a person is admitted to the hospital due to a brain injury and if the person is awake, the first test done is to check if he/she is able to follow the directions of the nurse/doctor, move his/her eyes and limbs as instructed. Then the speech is tested. These can give important clues in assessing the extent of the damage that has happened.
